Art & Dole

"How often do you use the site? Not as often as I should. For what reason do you use the site? I'm cheap. What relationship does the site and its content have to your work? Well, none at the moment as I'm not on the dole right now but plan to be once music dries up on me."

The Pirate Bay

"How often do you use the site? All the time. For what reason do you use the site? To save money. What relationship does the site and its content have to your work? None, except it helps me save for overseas tours by not leaving the house."

No Night Sweats

"How often do you use the site? Every so often I check for updates. For what reason do you use the site? Know where you come from. What relationship does the site and its content have to your work? Musical bearings. Australia has a richer musical heritage than most people think."

Skyscanner

"How often do you use the site? Whenever I'm booking tours. For what reason do you use the site? To find cheap flights. What relationship does the site and its content have to your work? Well, first I find a cheap flight from the last booked gig to wherever and then I start asking for gigs in the city that's the cheapest to get to."

Free Music Archive

"How often do you use the site? As a curator I try to add new material at least once a week. For what reason do you use the site? Free music that's been filtered by music fans. What relationship does the site and its content have to your work? Well, I get to upload heaps of plover stuff as well as my own work."
